I think this was a recipe from Hershey. OMG they are so good. I like to make a lot of different deserts for the holiday,and this is one that has been requested over and over. I like making my other peanut butter balls,and these to give away as gifts for neighbors etc. Nice holiday gifts for teachers,neighbors,friends,office etc.
